Agree with the view put in the newspaper today that they have basically thrown a hand grenade at the AFL and NRL and walked away. The head of the ACC, John Lawler, said this was about intelligence gathering, not evidence gathering.
In those circumstances it seems reprehensible that the ACC in concert with the government would make these allegations, tarnishing the names of clubs, codes and players and undermining peoples' confidence in Australian sport without any evidence.
What should have happened was they should have passed on their intelligence to the appropriate authorities and told them to gather evidence and start knocking on doors once they were able to charge people.
Just grandstanding from the hapless Kate Lundy
